Sextro Black Label Rye is rye like you have never tasted before.

Additional Product Info


Born on a small farm in Iowa during the Prohibition era of the 1920s, Sextro Rye was originally distilled by a local grandmother and clandestine bootlegger, Lorine Sextro. This is her recipe for a truly legendary 100% rye grain spirit, using grain grown locally in Carroll County Iowa.

Just as you would find in Sextro's little venture in 1931 Iowa, our Black Label Rye is first distilled in small batches, in custom-built stills with a capacity of no more than 26 gallons. After that, we leave our sweet rye to age for about 18 months in 15-gallon barrels. The result? Our most acceptable Black Label Rye, an authentic Prohibition era Rye whiskey!


Grab a bottle of Sextro Black Label Rye at your earliest if you want the authentic taste of Prohibition-era rye whiskey.
